Drop Cloth Decor

I loooove drop cloths!  

Who wouldn’t?  

Yards and yards of  neutral colored fabric for a song!  You can bleach it or even dye it.

I used some to make valances and pillows

I even upholstered a chair for my granddaughter’s American Girl Doll!

I had some tin plaques from the Dollar Store.  Don’t know why I bought them.  They were pretty ugly, but I figured I could do something with them–eventually!  I must have walked past them a thousand times before I was inspired to actually do something with them.

 I drilled two holes about an inch in and an inch down from the corners.  Then, I wrapped them  with drop cloth and hot glued it to the back and trimmed the fabric nice and neat.

I centered a stencil, taped it down and then filled it in with–

you’ll never guess–no, not paint–

black Sharpie Marker!  Yup!  Worked just fine!  

They still needed something, so I pulled out some black and cream fabric, ripped it into strips and made some fabric rosettes.  

I used jute string for the hanger, but it looked weird, so I cut a strip of the rosette fabric and glued it over the string.  Glued a rosette over one knot and tied a small strip of fabric around the other and there you have it!
